  1. NO ONE... AND I MEAN NO ONE CORRECTS FATCESSA.Then again, how could they when he is never wrong. If you read through the Mike and the Mad Dog thread, this is such a sore subject with me. Mike can't lose. People who like him will tune in, and people (like me) who can't wait to hear the next incorrect/arrogant/ridiculous comment out of his mouth will tune in.Yesterday was classic. "Alex from Villanova" calls in at 3:12 pm. Before Alex can get a word out, Mike says "You guys off the court yet?", referencing the Nova student body storming the court the prior night when they beat Louisville. I have no idea what the poor kid called about, as Mike never allowed him to speak. He simply yelled right over him and bullied him until finally hanging up on him. It was astonishing. I hope that fat prick gets steamrolled by a city bus. The bus might lose. Fatcessa is a pretty sizable speed bump.
  2. We are selling the old homestead... and I found one of my mother's old cast iron skillets, a 10 inch. The bottom is very encrusted, but I could make out the first two letters on the bottom... GR. I have to think it's a Griswold. Now, how do I restore it? One portion of the inside has some rust, like a small puddle of water had dried on it. The rest of the cooking surface is very smooth. The handle is smooth as well, but the outside walls and bottom are encrusted with a very rough black sort of surface. As I said, only "GR" can be read on the bottom. I got some rust on my hand after picking it up by the handle although it does not look rusty. Can anyone tell me how to go about saving this thing, if that is possible? I remember as a kid the wonderous things my mom cooked in this thing. Corned beef hash in particular was perfectly crispy and never stuck to the pan. She did panakes in it as well. Best pancakes I ever had, not even close. FWIW, I believe she had this skillet before I was born, almost 60 years ago now. I'd love to restore it both for nostalgic and practical reasons. Any help would be much appreciated.
  3. "physicallity" and "at the end of the day" Oh, and the kid at Quicken loans who is processing my mortage application that says "sounds like a plan" at point two hertz. That would be 2 times every ten seconds....
  4. Wow... been a while since I saw this freakin thread! I'm still using my Notcigs Buzz units, two of them, still working fine 18 months later. IkenVape really got me po'd with all his excuses and down time, I've been using vGo megas and while I have a failure rate of bad cartos of about 10%, at least when I need them, I order them, and I get them. As for the storm... what a PITA. I was sitting in my truck at least 8 hours a day using my V4L bypass unit with the cigarette lighter. I was able to occassionaly recharge my batteries down the block at a neightbor's house. Glad I was able to find that V4L bypass... a life saver. I still use V4L juice... I'm past experimenting and have settled in. I have not had a single puff of a stinky since I quit, maybe on page 22 or something? LOL... last Feb 22, 2011. Funny... even tho I was struggling to find a way to vape with no power, it never even entered my mind to buy a pack of smokes. Didn't even realize that until this moment. I've been reticent to lower either the amount I vape or dropping down from 36mg juice. Might be time for another challenge.
  5. On a side note..... "marijuana grinder" .... What's funny about a grinder? Why is having a grinder funny?I thought it was better to smoke the buds... I guess I've been out of the loop for too long?and what exactly do you think he's grinding?Stems and seeds. Obviously.Stems and seeds? That's ghetto. It's all about the buds, man. Not even like buds, more like bros. Make your own relationships, seek out your own peer group, I've found mine.Obviously.I take it this means you don't find the Sonic commercials funny?

  9. Middle of the pack at 2197... is this good or bad? Week 7 was my worst bye week, and my lowest score... 143. I've been running in the 170's mostly. Team 102467 I have Rodgers, luck, Sanchez and I loaded up on WR's. With Benson out, sure glad F Jackson is back, even with a bye this week. Dwyer saved my bacon last week, more or less. With F Davis gone, down to 1 TE, Celek.
  10. I've been starting him and 4WR and am somehow 5-2, although I flexed Dwyer last weekend. I figure I have to ride it out. He still has upside... but so did US Steel once.
  11. How does one know where they stand in YTD scoring? I'm at 1186 points.
  12. I thought for sure I'd get eliminated this time around with 6 players of 21 on a bye. Celek on a bye, F Davis down. Got lucky with Dwyer and F jackson. Heck Blackmon was my WR3. Not only did I make it, I had lots of room to spare with Wayne, Marshall and Rodgers. I threw this team together, it isn't built to go all the way. Lost Benson early.
  13. Yesterday he also had a 21 yard run called back for holding... could be the only way that line can create a hole though.
  14. Greene's running style, if it can be called that, makes him an easy target for big hits, and I don't see him holding up to 15 to 20 carries a game. Sure, Powell may not be any more than a very average RB, but at least for this year, at some point I see him replacing Greene as the "starter" whether due to injury or sub-par performance. By default he has high RB3 to low RB2 potential. I picked up Powell after week 2 thinking Ryan can't possibly keep running a woefully ineffective Greene out there game after game. Greene takes a lot of big hits. He can't elude a fire hydrant. Ryan sometimes just doesn't start or keep his best players. He released Woodhead to keep Patrick Turner. Not exactly a brilliant personnel decision. Either way, at some point I see Powell get the majority of RB touches on this awful offense.
  15. Looks like the people who bought into the hype are reaping the benefits. Barring injuries, Ryan looks like a lock for top five. With White, Jones and Gonzo, and Turner not performing well, Ryan could end up top 3.
